The Hour of Bad Decisions
The Hour of Bad Decisions, Wangersky’s first collection of short stories, deals with the way that humans, left to their own devices during dark nights of the soul, make rationalize all sorts of bad choices. Scandinavians refer to the hour of the wolf: as filmmaker Ingmar Bergman described it, “'The hour of the wolf is the hour between night and dawn. It is the hour when most people die, when sleep is the deepest, when nightmares feel most real. It is the hour when the demons are most powerful.”
The Path of Most Resistance
Wangersky’s third collection of short stories, The Path of Most Resistance, is an examination of the ways everyday people end up finding themselves solving problems in convoluted ways that make sense only to themselves. And sometimes, not even to themselves.
